What is the Zen Coaching Training?
"I feel inspired, stimulated,
energized, softer, happier. I have gained confidence in myself as a
coach, and see new possibilities for me. I have appreciated that it
has been playful and with plenty of laughs."
The Zen Coaching Training is a 19-20-day training, facilitated by either Kåre Landfald or Tine Vindelöv with 4-5 co-teachers and assistants.
The Zen Coaching Training is offered as a 4 module training in Sweden and South Africa, as a 5 module training in Poland and South Africa, and as a 7 module training in Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands. All modules focus on the power of presence, on specific life issues, and on key coaching principles and skills.
Participants receive a diploma and become certified Zen Coaches upon completed training, including completion of practice requirements.
You can do part 1, 'Relaxing Into Being', before committing to the full training.
The Zen Coaching training is both a personal growth journey, and training in how to support others through a specific and yet very natural listening process.

The Zen Coaching training:
The training includes 19 or 20 days of teaching diveded into 4, 5 or 7 modules, depending on which country it is offered in (see specific info about each country). The main topics covered in each module include the ones described below. For each topic, there is both a personal development process, and exploring specific coaching tools related to the topic.
Relaxing Into Being
Living with Curiosity & Trust
Curiosity and trust are the foundation for living a life of joy, fulfilment, expansion, growth and ease. We explore what supports the manifestation of these qualities, and what blocks it. We explore also how these qualities are essential in the work of a coach, and in the practice of asking powerful questions from intuition.
Deep Healing & Transformation
Relating from the Heart
We enter deeper into the heart, into the fundamentals of awareness, and of listening and effective questioning. We explore the principles and practice of nonviolent (heart-connecting) communication. We look into the art of honest and empathic relationships in all areas of life - family, love life, friendships, work, and social action.
We explore action and manifestation from a state of ease and effortlessness - in other words, living according to our heart and our full potential in everyday life. We also explore the details of the coaching session, the coaching relationship, the ethics of coaching, our relationship with money, authentic marketing, and on transforming inner blocks to succeeding with a private coaching practice.
You may join the training just for your personal benefit, including the benefit of your personal relationships, or in order to start working professionally as a coach, or to gain skills to be used in your existing role as manager, coach, therapist or similar.
Taking part in the Zen Coaching training also enables you to become part of a growing network of people trained in Zen Coaching. The purpose of this network is to have fun together, make friends, stay connected, rest as awareness, and learn from each other and keep the Zen Coaching approach alive in ourselves and the world. The Zen Coaching network will also help us expand and/or strengthen our personal coaching practice if we are offering coaching to clients.
